A man in the city's suburban Minhang District allegedly killed five people last night, including his wife and sister, police said today.

The suspect, Yuan Zhiwei, has been caught but police did not reveal any detail.

His neighbors said family dispute might be the cause of the man's killing rampage which took place in three separate spots in the neighborhood within a span of three hours until 10:30pm.

A middle-aged couple was found lying unconscious in a pool of blood around 8pm when their son came home. Both had been stabbed several times.
